Infinity Power Holding, the joint venture between Egypt’s Infinity and UAE’s Masdar along with Conjuncta GmbH, a German project developer, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a green hydrogen project with the government of Mauritania.
It would reach the electrolyser capacity of up to 10GW, making it capable of producing up to 8 million tons of green hydrogen or its equivalent in renewable fuels of non-biological origins. The green hydrogen, ammonia and/or other renewable fuels produced from the plant will be used for exports. The first phase of the plant with a planned capacity of 400MW is expected to be operational by 2028, at the northeast of the coastal capital of Nouakchott.
Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Abdessalam MOHAMED SALEH said: “Our country is determined to play a leading position on the global map of the green hydrogen economy in the coming decades. We strongly believe that the development of the green hydrogen industry in Mauritania will bring environmental, economic and social benefits to our country and the world.
I am very pleased today to have signed this MOU with the Consortium (Infinity Power & Conjuncta GmbH) which has very strong technical and financial capabilities and deep relationships allowing it to enter the European green hydrogen market, particularly in Germany”.
